Hello, I am relatively new to teaching - am in my third year and feel it is time for me to move on from the school I have completed my NQT year in and get experience of other schools and also because I would like to try out Key Stage 1 (I am currently a teacher at a junior school). I am a little unsure how to go about seeking a new teaching post at another school and have been advised by others not to hand my notice in before I secure a new post. I am a little unsure how I would be able to do this though as I would need time out of school to visit other schools, attend interviews, etc and also I would need to ask my headteacher for a reference. I would much rather be honest and open about the fact I am looking. Do you have any advice about how I should go about applying for a new teaching post? Many thanks.
